ACT ONE -SCENE 1 

In the darkness we hear the opening strains of the 
POKEMON THEME. It will serve as an overture. 

With the final note, everything goes black. The 
television screens flash on. MYSTERY MAN'S 
commercial plays. The opening image is some 
fabulous montage of Pokemon with Voice Over. 
MYSTERY MAN is actually GIOVANNI. 

MYSTERY MAN(GIOVANNI) (Voice Over) 
Attention all Pokemon Trainers! Announcing the all new. ..Diamond Badge. 

(There's a magical video effect. And we see a 
sexy product shot of the Badge) 

Diamonds are the hardest substance on Earth. And the Diamond Badge is the hardest Pokemon 
Badge on Earth to win. There's only one to be won! 

(The phrase, "Only One To Be Won" flashes 
across the screens) 

Only one way to win it.. 

(The phrase, "Only One Way To Win It" flashes 
across the screens) 

Only one way to make it yours, and yours alone. 

(There is some magical video effect. Suddenly, 

MYSTERY MAN appears on screen, holding the 
badge) 


MYSTERY MAN (GIOVANNI) (On Screen) 

By defeating me and my Pokemon in a Pokemon battle. Are you Trainer enough to try? If so, 
check out our website at www.diamondbadge.com... 

(The address flashes across the screen, as a 
fabulous shot of the map also fills the screen) 

...and download a copy of the map to where the battles are to take place. 

(The visual is once again MYSTERY MAN, now 
holding the badge) 

The Diamond Badge is waiting... for.. jyou! 

(There is another magical video effect and the screen goes 
black. Set changes to ASH's bedroom. ASH is in bed. PIKACHU 
is hiding under the covers. ..unseen for the moment. As the set is 
moving into place, MRS. KETCHUM and PROFESSOR OAK are 
crossing into it. THEY are each dressed to go out) 


ACT I - SCENE 2 

MRS. KETCHUM 

(With urgency) | Bed clears Iris 

Ash! Hurry up! Professor Oak is waiting! We're going to be late! 

(THEY reach his room, see him hiding under the covers in bed) 
Ash! You're not even out of bed yet! I woke you an hour ago! I told you we don’t have much 
time! | Bed Vz PS 

ASH 


And I told you, I don't want to go! 


PROFESSOR OAK 


You're passing up a rare opportunity, my boy. 


I've got important things to do. 


ASH 

PROFESSOR OAK 


(Holds up tickets) 

It’s not every day a world-renowned Pokemon expert personally invites us to his lecture on sleep 
disorders among the Snorlax.

ASH 

I know all about snoring Snorlaxes. I've got a Snorlax. 

PROFESSOR OAK 


There’s always more to learn. 


MRS. KETCHUM 


It’ll be fun, Ash. 


ASH 


You guys go. I'll be fine. 

(With a wink to PROFESSOR OAK) 
Just don't bring my mom home too late. 


PROFESSOR OAK 
(A little flustered) 

Ash. ..I'm not.. .we’re not. ..I haven’t. ..we haven’t... this is a serious lecture! Professor Xalrons is a 
brilliant speaker. And this is the first time he's been in this hemisphere in over a decade! 


MRS. KETCHUM 


(To ASH) 

I really want us to do things together. The way we used to. I miss that. 


ASH 

Mom! I'm not a baby anymore. I'm a Pokemon Trainer! And if I'm going to be a Pokeman 
Master, I've got serious work to do. 

PROFESSOR OAK 

He's got a point there, D'elia. Like it or not, he's growing up. 


ASH 

And I've got to be ready in case I run into Team Rocket! 

MRS. KETCHUM 

I'd prefer it if you stayed clear of Team Rocket. 

ASH 

Oh, Ma... You don't know anything about it. 

MRS. KETCHUM 

I know more than you think. About a lot of things, young man. 


PROFESSOR OAK 

If we're late we won't get a good seat. And there'll be no time to buy popcorn.

I’ll see you later. Train well! 


MRS. KETCHUM 
(To PROFESSOR OAK) 

(To ASH) 

(SHE kisses him goodbye) 


ASH 

(Wiping away the kiss) 
Mom! You don't kiss Pokemon Trainers! 


You do when they're your little boy. 
Mom! 


MRS. KETCHUM 
ASH 

MRS. KETCHUM 


(Corrects herself) 

Uh! When they're your son. But you'll always be my little boy. Be careful. 

(As ASH rolls his eyes, MRS. KETCHUM and 
PROFESSOR OAK hurry off. We hear the door slam)

POKEMON THEME begins playing. ASH sings and dances 
along with the song.) 

POKEMON THEME (2 B A MASTER) 

I WANT TO BE THE VERY BEST

TO CATCH THEM IS MY REAL TEST 
TO TRAIN THEM IS MY CAUSE 

I WILL TRAVEL ACROSS THE LAND

EACH POKEMON TO UNDERSTAND

There's a video and everything.

Forget it. I'm done, anyway.

There are other things in life besides Pokemon Gym Badges.

There certainly are! I'll be right back!

ASH 

Brock! We've got a map! You don't need to talk to every girl you see! 


Yes, I do! 


BROCK 

(As HE hurries to GIRL TRAINER 1 , HE crumples up the map 
and tosses it into a river, (offstage right) ASH and MISTY do not 
see this. As ASH and MISTY talk downstage center, BROCK is 
stage right talking in pantomime with GIRL TRAINER 1 . As HE 
does, HE spots GIRL TRAINER 2. HE "tells" GIRL TRAINER 1 
to wait a moment and races over to GIRL TRAINER 2 stage left.) 


ASH 

I wish Brock could keep his mind on one thing at a time. 


Oh, he does. 


MISTY 


ASH 

(Rolls his eyes) 

You know what I mean. We’ve got to get going! I want to win that diamond badge before anyone 
else does!

So, it’s going to be really hard to win. Not like the badges Brock and I gave you. 

ASH 

I won those badges fair and square! 

MISTY 


If you say so. 


ASH 


I did! 


MISTY 

It’s OK, Ash. It doesn’t matter how you got them 

(BROCK and GIRL TRAINER 2 have been chatting. HE 
suddenly notices GIRL TRAINER 3 upstage center. HE "tells" 
GIRL TRAINER 2 to wait a moment, and rushes to "talk" with 
GIRL TRAINER 3) 

ASH 

Yes it does! Badges are important. They’re a symbol. Like when a teacher gives you a gold star. 
Or your parents give you your own keys to the frar. Or a guy gives a girl his school ring to wear. 

MISTY 

(Intrigued by the "ring" reference) 

I never thought about it like that. 

(Suddenly, our attention, and theirs, is drawn upstage. 

GIRL TRAINERS 1 AND 2 have approached BROCK and 
GIRL TRAINER 3 from either side. BROCK is surrounded.) 

GIRL TRAINER 1 (NATALIE) 

"The girl you've been waiting for your whole life?!”

GIRL TRAINER 2 (SUZANNE) 


“The only girl in the world for you?!”

GIRL TRAINER 3 (ABBEY) 

“You've never felt this way about anyone before?!”

Come on, girls! Let's go capture some Pokemon.

It all started with the Pokemon! When he turned ten and became a trainer. Now, he doesn’t let 
me kiss him goodbye. He never wants to do things as a family. He's not my little boy, anymore. 
He's changing into something else. Someone else.

He's becoming a man. 


PROFESSOR OAK 
MRS. KETCHUM 


I don't want him to. Not yet. I'm not ready for that! 

PROFESSOR OAK 

[Everything changes, D’elia. And everyone. I have. You have. We have to change, to grow, to 
reach our full potential. ! That's one of the great lessons of the Pokemon. Would you really prefer 
Ash remain a little boy forever?

Not me and Pikachu! It had to have been Team Rocket! Hopefully, they haven't gotten too far. If 
we split into two teams, we can cover twice as much ground. I'll circle this way. Brock, you go in 
that direction. Well meet back here in thirty minutes.

PROFESSOR OAK 

I’m still feeling a little queasy after that helicopter ride over here. Dangling in the air in a cage is 
not my idea of fun.

I might as well tell you. I'm sure it will all come out when he gets back. I wasn’t always the 
upstanding woman you know. As a teenager, I fell in with a bad crowd. 

There was this one boy, he started a gang that eventually became Team Rocket. |

I know. But what you don’t know is... A long time ago. Before you were born. Before I met your

It wasn’t for long. When I met your father, I left. . .

The Pikachu didn’t want to battle you. But once his trainer gets here and commands him to, he 
won’t have a choice. You’ll lear n his electric attacks, and your education will be complete. So rest

hurls an enormous attack at him. HE puts his arms 
up to try to shield himself from whatever it is that is 
about to come at him. But somehow, magically, 
the attack is deflected. Suddenly a disembodied voice 
fills the stage)

here is that MEWTWO has channeled all of the goodness 
and love from ASH amplified it, and blasted it at 
MECHA-MEW2, who in return, learned and acquired it)
